The Stephens County Conservation District has changed locations for the upcoming Feral Hog Control Symposium on Thursday, Jan. 13, 2022.

There will only be one session to the symposium, changed from the two sessions reported last week.

The symposium will begin at 10 a.m. featuring guest speakers with a question-and-answer opportunity. Light refreshments will be served.

For ease of access the symposium location has changed to the Stephens County Fairgrounds located at 2002 S. 13th Street in Duncan.

Damage from feral hogs is increasingly a problem for many agriculture producers, with seemingly no viable answers or end in sight. Our goal is to present innovative technology, programs, and discussion regarding encouraging research in feral hog control.

Guest speakers will include Aaron Sumrall, PhD, outreach, education, and research with pig brig trapping system.

This system is a lightweight, multi-catch system that requires no cell phone service; Daniel Loper, representative with HogStop, a male contraceptive for feral boar hogs; Tanner Raasch, Feral Hog Technician with the Oklahoma Conservation Commission; and Reggie Creekmore, State Trapper with the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation.
